seller note Ear Trumpet / Conversation Tube.
Conversation tube around 43” long with faux tortoiseshell earpiece and bell, the latter 3½” long x 2” in diameter. The bell is stamped OL380 FWA-4A49 and DEC-1949 indicating its date of manufacture (despite its antique design these hearing aids were distributed to National Health patients in England as late 1976!).The tube is in excellent condition: you would be hard pressed to find a better example.
comment I have been llooking for an OL380 for ages. It is slightly different to the OL380A which I have. This one even has an earpiece.
